Research and Clinical Trials
Patients Benefit from Latest Scientific Discoveries
Our patients directly benefit from the major research conducted here at BIDMC. When you first meet with your pain specialist, you may be asked about your interest in participating in one of our clinical research trials.
While participation is voluntary, there are advantages to joining a study. First, it offers our patients the opportunity to gain access to the latest breakthrough treatments that often do not exist elsewhere. Participating in clinical trials also gives patients a chance to be part of the discovery process as scientists find new methods to relieve pain and learn more about the many causes.
Even if you do not participate in a clinical research trial, you can be confident your treatment plan at the Arnold Pain Management Center will include the most up-to-date and effective methods to help relieve your pain-based on our evolving scientific evidence as well as your own unique case.
